Steering Committee

About the Steering Committee

The PDEP Steering Committee (SC) is comprised of three members from each partner sector:

  • the Alliance of Canadian Dietetic Regulatory Bodies;
  • Dietitians of Canada; and
  • representatives of Canadian academic institutions and practical training organizations in dietetic education.

The SC has guided the development of the structural, administrative, and operational aspects of the Partnership.

The SC has appointed task-specific project working groups to lead on key initiatives such as the development of the Integrated Competencies for Dietetic Education and Practice, Accreditation, and Governance, as needed.
